Quote from: henke37 on March 11, 2013, 11:21:36 AMAll licensed snes games include a header that states the id of the memory map used.
Quote from: Gideon Zhi on March 11, 2013, 01:09:52 PMExcept that with the exception of stuff like the NMI, IRQ, and reset vectors, most of the header information is never actually accessed by the software, and as such is frequently incorrect and can't be trusted.
